Unpredictable India – 10 things only Indians do

Unpredictable India – 10 things only Indians do

1. When in India.

If they agree, they shake head. If they disagree, they shake head. If they don’t understand, they shake head.

2. When you ask for the way.

If they know, they show you the way. If they don’t, they still show you the way. If you ask: “Are you sure?”, they shake head.

3. When you eat out.

If you don’t tell them not to put chilli, they put chilli. If you tell them not to put chilli, they still put chilli. If you point out, they say: “This chilli is not s-pi-ceee.”

4. When you go street shopping.

The price is 1000Rs. If you pay 1000Rs, you get it. If you pay 500Rs, you also get it. If you pay 250Rs, you still get it.

5. When you drive.

If it’s green light, they sometimes go ahead and sometimes stop. If it’s red light, they sometimes stop and sometimes go ahead. If they are caught by police, they sometimes pay fine and most of the time bribe.

6. When you are a tourist.

A guy approaches to ask if you need help. If you say Yes, he follows you. If you say No, he says “It’s ok” and still follows you. In the end, he asks for money for stalking you around.

7. When you use mobile.

If you activate a value added service, it is activated. If you don’t activate the service, it is still activated. If you want to deactivate the service, you have to send an SMS. It costs.

8. When you go to a group meeting

If you come on time, you will have to wait. If you come 30mins late, you will still have to wait. If you come 1 hour late, they already changed to another location without informing you.

Oops, I planned to make it 10 but it seems like Indians are better than I thought

    Where have you been in India?

      Hey Tony, I was in India for only 4 months so I haven’t seen much of this enormous country: only a bit of the west and east coast and the north. I’m dying to go back there to check out the South.

    Hi Chip, I havn’t been to India, but I have about 50 Indian friends in class, from all parts of India. I’ve been to three different countries with them, and they just surprised me time by time :D
    I totally agree with you.

      Hey Linh,

      Thanks a lot for dropping by. If you think that I have missed out something about the Indian, please feel free to add to the list.

        You have such amazing observation about the Incredible India (One day I will go to India to test those things for sure :P )
        They are good at dancing, and of course, they have unlimitted strengths for partying, that I can’t find from my Vietnamese friends haha.
